Soldering Iron Stand Holder

Introduction: Soldering Iron Stand Holder

Making a simple and cheap soldering iron holder. Details in the photos. I will be making a video how to make one or two.

Step 1:

The soldering iron stand is made from a 10mm pipe bender. Cut the pipe bender to length and knock out the bottom ring on a metal edge, like a vice jaw. Choose a desired angle to stop at, roughly 45 degrees. Then use a screw and a washer, fix it to a base. I chose a wooden base I fitted a tip cleaner to.

Step 2:

Step 3:

For this holder / storage, I bought a Razor tin off ebay for £3. These vintage Valet Auto Strop tins can be found quite cheap. Remove the bottom 'felt' like material. It is glued down. Cut a piece of plywood to fit the bottom and use the base material to cover the plywood. Dril la hole to fit a small nut and bolt. Use a spring door stop. Unscrew the wide top part, very easy to come off. Then remove the plastic off the small end. Turn out one of the small rings on the bottom and fit to the board with the nut and bolt. Hot glue the base in the tin. A TS100 soldering iron fits perfectly in the tin with room for tips, solder wire and a small tub of flux. Pocket size soldering iron kit.

    I'm seeing photos for each step but not words. Did you add written directions to every step?

    When I uploaded the pics, I wrote in the box next to the pics what I did. It all seems to be missing. Most of the pics seem to be there. I also uploaded a video but have not seen it yet.

    I see text for some of the steps but not all of them. So are they all supposed to have text? If you go into edit them do you see the text there or is it missing in the editor as well?

    Video embeds aren't working as well right now, but you can embed them right into the text box by clicking the icon on the far left so the text box is black and then copy the Embed code on Youtube and paste it in there.
